All that Time

All that time I had eaten no rich food. No meat or wine crossed my lips, and I used no fragrant lotions until those three weeks had passed. (NLT) -Daniel 10:3
As adults we gain more freedoms than we may necessarily be ready for. Our self-control may not be developed enough to handle saying no even if we have the means and ability to say yes. A lack of self-control leads us further from God. Daniel was surrounded by luxury, rich foods, and had many freedoms. Daniel fasted to seek out God and strengthen his self-discipline. Do you ever feel as if your desires get the better of you when you give in?
